Today marks the first day of Teri’s Weight Loss Challenge. However, it has grown a little and is now also going to make me put my money where my mouth is. My friends, Stephanie and Holly, have also decided that they would like to lose weight this summer. We decided to create a private group on Facebook where we could keep each other updated and accountable. To spice things up a little, we have also turned this into a competition and are calling in The Facebook Weight Loss Challenge, since it’s not just mine anymore.
After each Wednesday Weigh-In, we will post our weight lost as a percentage. The two people with the lowest percentages have to put $10 into a pot. That week’s winner will contribute no money. Also if we miss a workout or cheat on our diet [except for our one “cheat day” each week] we have to contribute $1 for each infraction.
At the end of the summer, the person who has lost the highest total percentage of body weight will win the entire pot. I must win! Glory, as well as a couple hundred dollars, hang in the balance.
Here is the workout that I am pledging:
1. Workout every day [except my cheaty day].
2. Teri’s Rule of S: Slower eating, smaller portions, and no sweets, snacks, soda, or seconds.
3. Saturday is my cheat day.
I will post weekly updates here as well like I had planned on doing before the challenge grew.
Wish me luck!
